Our team at Brand Advance is excited to add Robert Urban as our new Chief Operating Officer. Robert comes with much talent and experience that will aid in the growth of Brand Advance, including extensive experience in sales and marketing operational strategy and staffing implementation.
After being honorably discharged from the Marine Corps Robert has held various roles of responsibility highlighted by serving as the recruiting practice director for Raretec Consulting, an international recruitment and consulting firm, and acting as the Chief Marketing Officer of CareerPledge, a SAAS technology firm. His areas of expertise are in combining technology, sales, and marketing best practices to create an incredible service offering and client/customer satisfaction. He has acted as an executive marketing/technical implementation consultant to many of the fortune 500 companies and has delivered staffing and operational enterprise strategy across multiple verticals for all sizes of business.
His role with Brand Advance is to assist the CEO in concreting processes and operations, act as a marketing consultant to various companies, and lead business development through effective management of the sales team.
Robert’s business philosophy is resonant to Occam’s razor-“simplest explanation or strategy tends to be the best one.” He is also the founder of Orlando Marketing Executives Networking Group and involved in nonprofit organizations helping veterans with PTSD. He currently resides in Orlando, Fl and in his off time, he enjoys spending time with his son and girlfriend, playing guitar, chess, and fishing.
Robert, myself, and the rest of the Brand Advance team look forward to growing your business in 2010 and beyond.
